What does it mean ad SBV on pedigree cert?
SBT is usual but SBV for bengal cat?

SBV means that she has crosses outside the breed within 3 generations in her pedigree within the permissible group of outcrosses. She would have to be SBV as a G4, as F1, G2, and typically G3 male Bengals are infertile.

From TICA

Cats carrying a full three generation pedigree, which are the product of two or more members of a breed group will be designated by the SBV (variant) prefix, whereas cats with only a single breed within a standard three generation pedigree will be designated by the prefix SBT.
